Like the Massachusetts health care plan, Governor Schwarzenegger's plan will require that every Californian, regardless of his or her immigration status, obtain health care insurance. For those who cannot afford it, the state will subsidize the cost. Those who go without health insurance will be subject to tax penalties.
The plan will also require businesses with 10 or more employees to offer insurance to their workers or pay 4 percent of their payroll into a state fund. Insurers would no longer be allowed to deny coverage to people because of their medical problems. All children, regardless of their immigration status, would be covered through an expansion of the state and federal Healthy Families program.
Much of the immediate opposition, according to The Washington Post, is expected to come from fellow Republicans, who object that the plan will be costly for small businesses. In addition, Schwarzenegger is expected to face opposition for the extension of health coverage to illegal aliens. Indeed, Assembly Republican Leader Michael Villines has already criticized the plan, arguing it would "create a worldwide incentive to come to California for healthcare. The magnet would be enormous."
Californians statewide seem to agree. The Los Angeles Times reports that a new San Jose State University poll shows that Californians generally oppose the idea of the state providing health insurance to illegal aliens. The statewide poll of 985 Californians, conducted just before Schwarzenegger unveiled his plan, proposed generic questions. When asked whether the state should guarantee health insurance for illegal immigrants, 37% answered yes, 52% no. The negative reaction was even stronger among registered voters: 32% yes, 58% no. The strongest support for the plan was in Los Angeles.
Public opposition may be due to heightened awareness of the impact illegal immigration has on the state coffers. For example, The North County Times reports that last spring, the State of California issued a report concluding that a significant number of Medi-Cal paid deliveries were for illegal aliens. Specifically, the report showed that in 2004, providers delivered 248,086 babies statewide at taxpayers' expense. Of those, 42.6 percent were to illegal aliens. Los Angeles County, Orange County, and San Diego County were the top three counties registering births to illegal aliens. State officials estimate that in 2004, the total cost to California taxpayers ran more than $400 million.
Governor Schwarzenegger's proposal will require legislative action to go into effect. If passed, California would become the fifth and by far the largest state to attempt near universal health coverage for its residents. The other four states are Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and Hawaii.

It is obvious that Texas needs a new highway system that can move traffice more safely and exeditously. Actually, Texas should lead the way in new interventions to ready iself for more growth of population and expansion of industry into this State. Rick Perry is the one peson that can handle this large of a project. He is a good man and knowes exactly how to move Texas into the future.

I have dedicated many months of my time to prepare a report of sorts on the DRP. What I have discovered is that the entire fate of Texas is connected to the Surcharge Program. This is because the money from the Unconstitutional program is earmarked for the Tran-Texas Corridor, which is a strategic segment of what is to become a Super Corridor that spans the entire North American Continent.

The state is suspending people's license over not paying an excessive surcharge fee that is in addition to what you agree to in court. What's more is the money is going to pay for the Corridor projects, without consent or knowledge or the People or Congress! I believe that spreading the word would enable individuals to better deal with the negative effects that the TX DRP has had on their lives, as well as have a say in their own future.

If you mean 'the human race' I'm all for that. Most terms are of the 'La Raza' is nothing more than the Mexican KKK.

If people of fairer skined spouted 'racial' pride what do you think that says? Racism doesn't skip colors people.

Freedom doesn't either. Fascism is very selective about peoples rights.

choose but choose wisely in your words and understand the true meanings.
